Re: Football zone vol 6

Spot on tactics from the Special One yet again.

You know it's a good season when even Liverpoop matches are fun to watch. April 27 is going to be crunch time - can't wait.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, BEST EPL SEASON EVER.

Regarding this, Arsenal are not as rich as Chelsea, United or Man City so I believe comparing Arsenal to Bayern, Real and Barca goes a bit too far. They are not historically as successful, financially as strong or globally as big.

The reason Arsenal fans have such high expectations is because Wenger propelled them to the top of the game domestically and to an extent in Europe, and in this era of super-clubs Arsenal have been near the top - but to slip from that point fits in with their history. They are a great club but are not as big as the above three, nor as big as Milan or Juventus, so I believe the comparison is somewhat flawed.

Now I'm sure it's hugely frustrating to be an Arsenal fan, especially with results like today and the lack of even domestic cups, and I am genuinely interested to know whether a top-four finish and the FA Cup would be considered a successful season?

But I genuinely believe that expecting Arsenal to win the league in any given season is quite unrealistic given the financial clout of their opponents, and the same goes for continental competition.
Well said.

Well, we have a very attacking style. Leaky defense is a shame, but I see it as an inevitable by-product of being so expansive.

The SAS can fire us to 100 league goals this season

The goals it suffered against City, Liverpool and now Chelsea are about 50% of all goals they took, it's really pathetic.
Wenger stubbornly refuses to change his tactics when away to the big teams, and it costs him dearly.

Key is to let them have possession until they reach the halfway line. Press 'em in midfield, win the ball then break and run in behind 'em.

This is the first genuinely exciting Liverpool team I've seen. They are brilliant to watch.
We were pragmatic under Houllier and Hodgson. Had our moments under Benitez.

Re: Football zone vol 6

Apparently 450,000 of ManUnited true fans unliked their Facebook page after their latest defeat against Liverpool. With fans like that, who needs enemies.
I just hope they don't decide to become the world's most hardcore Liverpool fans now.

Re: Football zone vol 6

You can never avoid people like that. The only bad thing is that they drive up ticket prices like crazy.

When I went to Anfield, I had the best intention of singing my heart out, but literally every single person sat in my section was obviously a tourist with zero desire to sing and/or support the team in any way other than taking constant flash-aided pictures of themselves and only cheering when the Reds scored a goal. So I ended up being quiet myself, which was disappointing. Next time it's the Kop or nothing.

Re: Football zone vol 6

Pedro and Sanchez both dropped to the bench for Barca, Cesc and Neymar start. Never in doubt these moves. Sanchez should definitely be starting in my opinion.

Re: Football zone vol 6

Fantastic half of football.

Fantastic double head butt dive from Cesc and Pepe.

Awful defending from both teams. Benzema should have scored at least one more

Re: Football zone vol 6

It will be a glorious day for all Barca fans when Valdes finally leaves. Really hope Mascherano joins him.
